Sheriff vs. PD

A member of the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office hugs someone from the Seguin Police Department at the end of the game on Friday, June 14, 2019 at Seguin High School.

Law enforcers in Guadalupe County got together recently to help protect the community by serving up a pair of scholarships to deserving residents.

On Friday, the Seguin Police Department team defeated one from the Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Office in a friendly game of basketball.

The event, open to the public, served as a fundraiser to provide education help to someone in need. The Seguin officer who organized the game thought he’d start out slowly with just one scholarship but the match was such a resounding success that they raised enough for two $500 gifts.

And the giving didn’t stop there.

The sheriff lost a friendly wager on the game to the police chief. The loser had to fork over a sum to the scholarship collection.

The men didn’t say how much they bet, but the chief doubled down and decided to donate as much to the cause as the sheriff lost.

The entire night of competition and camaraderie highlighted the good the men and women law enforcers of Guadalupe County do, the lengths they go to go above and beyond the scope of their duties.

Also presumably, those scholarships will be used to better the lives of people who, hopefully, remember the unsolicited efforts of the deputies and officers and do their best to pay it forward.

Deputies and police for this county shot and scored a big win for the community Friday night in Seguin.
